For our sixth Slow Food Supper this year, we are highlighting Ethiopian Cuisine! If you’ve ever had Ethiopian cuisine before, you pine for it always. The complexity of the berbere spice mixture, the texture of the spongy injera bread, the spicy lentil, chicken and lamb stews that you scoop up with injera, washing it all down with honey wine or beer – this cuisine is a perfect candidate for a Slow Food Supper, as it ranks among the most convivial of eating styles – on the floor around a communal plate, eating with our hands!
We chose June for this potluck because there is a very important festival called Laylatul Bara’ah that translates as “the night of deliverance”. The observance involves a festive night-long vigil with prayers.
We will be sourcing plenty of injera locally for this great potluck that has been requested for many years!
Please bring your dish ready to eat. If you need to reheat at the potluck, that is fine.
Please provide a list of ingredients in your recipe as well.
Slow Food Suppers are potlucks, and they are always free to attend. Just RSVP to this ticket so we know how many people we’ll be hosting. This year, each Slow Food Supper will take place in a different location, across the state – this one will be in Essex Junction. These events are always packed and promise a good time, so if you haven’t attended one yet, please do!
We look forward to seeing you there!
